This is what I want to be when I grow up....
as a young girl I dreamt of being a teacher because I loved school so much...and all my teachers had been wonderful!!
i moved onto wanting to be an Air Hostess so i could travel to exotic locations....and to be independant!

but I was also into fashion so thought being a
Fashion Editor and stylist would be such a cool job!

I remember reading Diana Vreeland's biography and was totally absorbed!!
During my uni days I volunteered at a fashion magazine - the fashion shoots were the best, even having silly tasks like sticking masking tape under new (and expensive) shoes so the models dont ruin them was such a buzz to me!! haha...

No regrets...I just wish I had stuck to doing something a little more creative than number crunching...(this girl has my dream job!!)
but Im happy to be able to do part time finance work as well as find time for my creative hobbies and most importantly be there for my family....Peter has the biggest smile when im there to pick him up from school on my days off!

Im always keen to learn too so next month Ive booked in to do a Bookbinding course! cant wait!

thanks to Cindy for this week's theme and to Sharon for hosting!

  2. Nothin wrong with number crunchin - I'm one of them too! Have fun bookbinding - I've also been wanting to give it a go. Let us know how it goes!!

    sounds like you have been able to balance work and home and hobbies which is pretty succesful. Like the sound of the bookbinding course. I am always on the lookout for new creative things to do.

  4. Loved reading about your stages of wanting to be different things and I am glad that you liked school and your teachers-that's a bonus as so many have bad school memories.I think you have a great balance at the moment but that dream job does sound wonderful!

  5. I am so lucky. I do exactly what I wanted to do when I grew up. I am a writer, editor, journalist, photographer and lovin' it.

  6. I was like you wanting to be different things as I grew up. I like yours =)

    And a bookbinding course is one of the things I really want to do...I'm hoping to book one for a few months time.

    Let us know how it all goes!! And thanks again for your package!

  7. oh, i share your passion for fashion, a! how fun to work in a fashion mag! how i would love to have coffee {or tea} together and talk about all of that!
    i think of you every time i watch the rachel zoe project show on bravo {you can download it from itunes}. if you can watch it let me know, so we can gossip about it!

  8. They are some great childhood dreams, a few I wouldn't mind myself. It's wonderful though that you can bring money in with money crunching but still have time for creative pursuits and family. Sounds pretty good to me.

  9. Great list! and the bookbinding sounds like a fab idea!

  10. I think when we do something very left brained like #s or the legal stuff I did, we really need the balance of crafty creative. I realized that my cooking filled that need for many uses both hands and allowed me to go with my inspirations.

    Today, I find I need the balance of left brainy stuff. Actually studying the techy stuff fills that gap right now.

    btw, you can have United...I fell for the Brannif uniforms. Pure 60s glam.

  11. mmmm, that bookbinding course will be SO great! I'm actually glad we live in an era where we can swap professions if we like. Can you imagine being the same thing, working for the same place for 40 years?!

    Your Uni/fashion experiences sound awesome!!!!

    I think you'll make a great fashion editor, so cool reading about your uni days photoshoots :) I've wanted to be an air steward too...

  13. so fun to hear about these childhood dreams... i wanted to be an air hostess too! my aunt was one for many years and it always seemed so glamorous.
    looking forward to hearing about your bookbinding course! i had a wonderful bookmaking class in college that was one of my favorites!

  14. I wanted to be a lawyer when I was about 7. Now I just argue with people for free :)


Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment!! i really appreciate it!
